Very scarce T.L.S. 4to. 1 page, The National Committee for Mental Hygiene, January 7th, 1935, to acclaimed photographer Pirie MacDonald. Because of the Great Depression, MacDonald has reduced Beers unpaid photography invoice, in part: "...You are a great scout. When you have so many calls upon you and have your own troubles during these depressed times, it was mighty fine of you to make any contribution at all to our work. I greatly appreciate your cutting in half of the $36 bill and I send you herewith my personal check for $18 in settlement..." Near Fine.
